On 20th April 2018, it was reported that Mr Campbell had claimed that far-right individuals posing as supporters of Jeremy Corbyn could be responsible for online abuse of Jewish MPs as part of a “deliberate and organised attempt to bring Jeremy [Corbyn] down.”
Mr Campbell stood down before the December 2019 election.
We do not know whether disciplinary action has been taken by the Labour Party against Mr Campbell, and at the time of writing, on 5th October 2020, we have no record of any. However, the circumstances and outcomes of any such action would remain unknown, owing to the conditions of secrecy imposed by Baroness Chakrabarti’s report on antisemitism in the Labour Party.
In October 2020, Campaign Against Antisemitism put this matter to both Mr Campbell and the Labour Party, but did not receive a response.
